todd showed us just what they are up against. >> reporter: we're here in this town of ofunato which was devastated. these guys are courageous, they go into the structures all the time knowing they could come down at any minute. you can see endless whole blocks of nothing but rubble, this is what they guys have to come and try to sift through to find people alive. i will show you one stark contrast. you can see up that hill, that's what high ground does in a tsunami. it can save those structures, save the people in them. but down here, they just almost didn't have a chance. just on the other side of these buildings is an inlet that comes in from the ocean. so it kind of funneled the tsunami waters in here and rescue workers tell us that it made the waters even stronger. just incredible force that came through that funnel, through that inlet and swept over this entire area. i'm here with chief chris shoft. when you come upon a scene like this, how do you not get overwhelmed? >> if you look at it in a big picture, it is easy to get overwhelmed. we break it down to small coordinates and

>>> this sunday, the allied strike against libya stretches into its second week as the u.s. seeks to limit its role. >> responsibility for this operation is being transferred from the united states to our nato allies and partners. >> but as criticism from congress mounts, many questions remain. what happens if gadhafi clings to power? what are the limits of the u.s.'s role if a civil war gets worse? and how does a military campaign relate to our overall strategy in the mideast? this morning, a special joint interview, with us, the secretary of state hillary clinton and secretary of defense robert gates. >>> then -- the president faces critics from both sides of the aisle. did he overstep his constitutional authority by using force without consulting congress. my interview this morning with republican from indiana senator richard lugar. >>> finally, analysis of the administration's handling of the crisis in libya is our fragile economic recovery continues and our military is stretched thin by two other wars, did the president make the case to the american people that libya is worth

can call the obama doctrine, when to deploy u.s. military forces around the world. he laid out the case when it's in the united states interest to use military force, when it's in the united states interest not to use military force, and this is the example that he gave, this is going to be the precedent, what the united states has done now in libya, presumably given the explosion of unrest that's happening right now throughout north africa and the middle east, if there are similar circumstances that develop in other countries, whether in syria, or yemen and bahrain, and the potential of mass slaughter of civilians is there, the pressure will be on this president to go ahead and authorize what the president authorized in libya. and the greatest potential for the u.s., if there's a revolution, and if there's serious unrest in iran and the people are standing up against mahmoud ahmadinejad and the i ayatollahs take similar action as far as iran is concerned. i think we can call this the obama doctrine. >> and he also made it clear what the limits of this mission is as he sees it

was at the speech. he's joining us now live. nic, was this another simple ramble expose, if you will, by gadhafi, a little bit more normal than what he said yesterday, or was it just vintage gadhafi? >> reporter: i think this was gadhafi going on the offensive, far from throwing in the towel and giving up here. a two and a half hour speech, longer than some of his other speeches. the symbolism was there, carried live on national tv. walked into the room and crowds of his supporters chanted and he literally stood taking all this adulation for ten minutes before he sat down and started speaking. he had a number of threats, not only for the united states, as we heard there, but for the rebels. on the one hand telling the rebels just there's gunfire going on in the background in tripoli, not only telling the rebels that they should put down their weapons and they wouldn't face charges or they could still sort of stop the fighting, if they wanted to, which was strange because at the same time he was attacking them, bombing them in the east of the country, as ben wedeman was witnessing, but also he wa

like from what i've seen before look like pieces of a cruise missile. it's hard for us to confirm exactly what sort of weapon or missile this might be. it's also hard for us to confirm anything that we're being told about what this building was being used for. certainly the people we're with here have just gone inside the building. this lady pulling out more bits of debris. what she's saying is look at this. for them this is proof this building was struck by some kind of a missile. okay. this is still warm. and the writing on it says this equipment contains parts and assemblies sensitive to damage by discharge precaution when using and over here it's hard to read it looks like a serial number on the other side. let's have a look over here. hard to know exactly what it is. being shown something else over here. heavy part of something. this is what people here are telling us, showing us is part of a missile system. let me have a look at this. this is from the outside. certainly seen a few cruise missiles before. certainly it has the look of a weapon of a missile about it. again, can

[tone!] supervisor avalos: what detailed do you have or how shall we try to procure more information about the joint task force? >> i think the starting point is the question they have refused to answer for reasons we do not understand. how many officers does the police
. that's how the u.s. defense secretary describes the operation so far but he also sounds a warning. in benghazi, the rebels celebrate as the libyan military calls for an immediate cease-fire. allied forces say they'll wait and see if this time that promise is genuine. >>> good evening. i'm wolf blitzer in washington. we want to welcome our viewers watching on cnn networks around the world. this is a cnn special, "libya war." tonight we're live from five continents as we cover the military movements, the political back-and-forth, and the diplomatic steps being taken against moammar gadhafi and his regime. here's what we know right now. a senior official with coalition forces tells cnn allies targeted a building in moammar gadhafi's compound in tripoli because it was connected to the command and control of libyan troops. there's no indication colonel gadhafi was inside the building. strikes on the north african nation are to continue despite calls by the libyan government for a stop to the fighting. allies don't trust that he will honor a cease-fire. on sunday some of those troops to
education, research. and now toave the republican leader come and tell us we've got to accept that, that's the future of america. no, it's not. time and again when we sit down to deal with the budget challenges, whether it's in the deficit commission, which i was honest servicessered to serve on -- which i was honored to serve on, or whether it's in past negotiations, we open this table up to all federal spending, not just to 14%, that tiny slice of a pie. senator mcconnell c remembe remember, and i can too, under president herbert walker bush and under president clinton, we put on the table these tax breaks for some of these oil companies and corporations and said, is it really worth america's future for us to give them a tax break or to use the money to reduce the deficit? that's an honest question. mandatory spending. all of these things need to be brought to the table for conversation. but that's not the position of the republicans. they would rather see us shut down the government than to open this conversation to the entire federal budget. they would rather see us shut down t
odyssey dawn to nato. the united states a huge part of nato? how much is the u.s. still on the hook? who will issue the orders? john bolton is here to go on the record. now, president obama, a few minutes ago. >> the president: gadhafi declared he would show no mercy to his own people if we waited one more day, benghazi, a city nearly the size of charlotte, could suffer a massacre that would have reverberated across the region and stained the conscience of the world. it was not in our national interests to let that happen. i refused to let that happen. in this particular country, libya, at this particular moment, we were faced with the prospect of violence on a horrific scale. we had a unique ability to stop that violence. international mandate for action. a coalition prepared to join us. the support of arab countries. and a plea for help from the libyan people themselves. moreover, america has an important strategic interest in preventing gadhafi from overrunning those who oppose him. a massacre would have driven thousands of additional refugees across libya's borders. putting enormous
. the government seems to have tripoli relatively tied up. you can travel around town and they are busing us around town. there are organized demonstrations in support of gaddafi. it's hard to get people openly able to speak to us. they really seem to have tripoli under control. you can go 20 kilometers down the road and find people who are against gaddafi. >> thank you very much. that is our reporter in tripoli, paul. let's discuss the concept of what the international community can do to try to force colonel gaddafi out of power. that is what president obama, prime minister david cameron in the u.k., and others have said they want to do. how did they make that happen? the idea of a no-fly zone has been discussed, of course. let's talk a little bit about that with michael from the washington institute in the united states. thank you for joining us. what's the view of a no-fly zone from where you are in washington? >> i would say the view is split in washington. the government has been cautious on the idea. it looks like the -- it looks like the obama administration is not moving forward asking for

the next day and then you're not putting up any forces, you're criticizing the u.s. for foreign military intervention. so they want to make sure the arabs are along with them so then they can't be blamed later on. so that's -- >> finish your point there. >> so that's why we've been seeing secretary clinton really in the last week reaching out to those arab leaders saying, we need you with us. you say you're going to -- you say you support this, you say you want us to influence the no-fly zone, what are you going to do to stand with us to do this? this is really extraordinary. an arab league authorizing force against one of its members. as we've said, it's really a unique since the gulf war in 1991. >> unique in many ways, but no matter what, will there still be some elements in the arab world who will see this as still being operated, still being controlled behind the scenes at least in large part by western powers, appearing once again to be exerting some kind of military action in another arab country? >> well, we've seen -- that's why this is really unique. because nobody has
on that later in the hour. now libya, though. the top commander of the u.s. military operation in libya says nato has agreed in principle to not only take over the no-fly zone, but also the broader mission of protecting civilians. he said it's all going to happen very soon. here's what general carter hamm said today on "the situation room." >> we expect that nato will take over the no-fly zone this weekend, and then the next piece, the third and final piece, is the mission to protect civilians. nato, it's my understanding that nato has agreed to that in principle and will this command decide on the procedures and timing of accepting that mission. but i think that will probably occur in the very near future. >> ham also said that removing moammar gadhafi from power by military means is not the aim of the mission and the coalition isn't arming the opposition. but the coalition strikes on gadhafi's mechanism of power continue. authorities say coalition fighter planes took out seven libyan tanks in 24 hours. in fact, we got this video from the british ministry of defense showing british aircraft

. phoenix, arizona on our line for republicans. what should the president say on the u.s. involvement in libya on monday? caller: if he's the intelligent president i want him to tell us why we're going into libya and not the sudan and not bahrain. i think it's un:tionable to open another front when we're spending millions a day on iraq and afghanistan and 50% of our revenue goes to defense. host: the sudan would be another front, too. caller: we could help solve that with humanitarian aid. with the cost in fossil fuels, if we paid the actual cost that fossil fuels cost us, we would pay $12.50 a gallon for gasoline because these wars are about oil. what i'm saying is if he's the innocent president then why doesn't he talk about -- intelligent president why doesn't he talk about the bahrain or sudan? he's doing it for oil just like the last -- just like the iraq war. and i think we need to question why we're doing these things. if we want to help people resisting and trying for democracy, let's do that. but let's not be hidden about our agenda.
